The Elusive Tea Bowl




On March 14th, starting at 10:00 am, the Harvard Ceramics Program will take part in hosting the Elusive Tea Bowl Exhibition and Symposium in cooperation with the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, The Japan Society of Boston and the Lacoste Gallery in Concord, MA. Historically, the tea bowl has been a symbol for the aesthetic that pervades the tea ceremony within Eastern culture exhibiting unpretentious beauty, humility and dignity within this simple ceramic form. Since the appreciation of the world of tea has grown and the number of American ceramicists making tea bowls has increased, this comprehensive symposium addresses the role of the tea bowl as both ceremonial vessel and three-dimensional art form in the wake of the artistic exchange between East and West.
